The Elder Scrolls Online Blackwood preview - Everything you need to know

The next chapter in the continuing saga of The Elder Scrolls Online has been announced and will be winging its way to your game soon.

Titled The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood, the latest chapter in ZeniMax and Bethesda's MMORPG is taking us on a journey to a region not seen in an Elder Scrolls game for almost fifteen years. We’re going to Southern Cyrodiil, and there’s a heap of changes incoming for the game. Here’s everything you need to know about ESO Blackwood.

What is TESO Blackwood?

What is TESO Blackwood?

Blackwood is the next expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online. In it, players will head to the region of Blackwood, an area that hasn’t been seen in-game since The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Highlights of this area include the swamp-adjacent city Leyawiin and the Argonian bogs of Shadowfen.

Blackwood will also be part of the year-long Gates of Oblivion storyline which will run through 2021. A series of story-driven events, DLC, and new quests will bring new adventures for players throughout the year as heroes work to foil the destructive plots of the Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon.

There are no new classes coming to ESO Blackwood, however you will be able to recruit your own companion using the brand-new Companions system. You’ll fight with them, explore their stories, and even level them up using all-new skill trees.

Overall. Bethesda and Zenimax Online promise over 30 hours of content in ESO Blackwood, with much more coming as part of three pieces of DLC which will be released over the year.

When is TESO Blackwood's release date?
